    In all my years of web browsing, I'd say TED.com has the best.

    The worst? YouTube, easily.

    Macrumors has the best, of course.

    Dpreview has some real gems, when it comes to idiotic threads.

    You'd think that a site dedicated to the minutiae of high end professional cameras would attract an equally professional fanbase, but...no. NO! They get flat out crazy over there.

    "What's that, dip****? Are actually going around claiming that Bayor sensors are superior to Foveons? What the hell are they teaching kids in special ed these days? How not to breath out of your mouth? Seriously, dude. Only an idiot would claim something so stupid! Bayors are bog standard sensors that come in cheap knockoff Wal-Mart DSLRs, and aren't even capable of resolving the color spectrum as well as my left nut. I swear to god if I see you at the next Nikon gathering, I'll slit you open like a hog in a slaughterhouse. Try to f-stop me."

    It's a scary, scary place.

    I heard dpreview is the only site they let you access from the computer in the rec-room of the looney bin.

    That'd only explain half of what goes on there.

    That is true, but some threads and discussions are unbelievably bizare, petty and downright disturbing. It even goes lower than youtube sometimes.

    I guess I have my filter on those, or perhaps its the sub forums I read over there but generally I'm not annoyed by them.

    Quora has some nice comments. Around here is pretty good most of the time, if you don't get too involved in PRSI.

    Oh, it's a great site. Practically the Anandtech of the photography world. But it is host to a strangely rabid and angry fanbase.

    Polygon is generally decent for gaming related stuff. Things rarely get out of hand.


    It's hard to think of more examples as most comments sections are riddled by idiots.
